Texas is a Hot Bet vs West Virginia

WVU vs Texas

Two top 25 teams highlight Tuesday night’s college hoops schedule when the Texas Longhorns host the West Virginia Mountaineers, and both teams are on a role at the betting window. Texas has covered the spread in seven of their last eight games, while West Virginia is 8-3 ATS over their last 11 games.

Shark Bites
  • Texas is 7-3 SU in its last 10 games.
  • West Virginia is 1-5 SU in its last six games when playing on the road vs Texas.
  • The total has gone UNDER in five of Texas' last six games.

The Longhorns got the better of the Mountaineers when the teams last met on January 20, winning 56-49 as 12-point underdogs. West Virginia dominated the battle on the glass, recording 49 rebounds to Texas’ 33, but were ultimately done in by poor 3-point shooting (3 for 21) and abysmal free throw shooting (8 for 23). The win added to trend that’s seen Texas cover six out of their last seven games over WVU, and win seven out of 10 against them straight up.

Texas has been hot at home, winning six straight games SU and covering the spread in three straight. They are, however, coming off of two straight losses on the road to Oklahoma and Iowa State. They opened as 2.5-point favorites for tonight’s game, but despite their mini run at home, they're a lackluster 5-6 ATS as home favorites this season.

Texas has also been a hot UNDER play at home recently, going UNDER in six of their last eight home games. Tonight’s game opened with a total of 137.5, a total these teams haven’t surpassed in their last four games against each other.
